Prospective Residents

CSCC has been in business for over 40 years with the mission of providing affordable housing, while also providing a supportive community for its residents.

Living Cooperatively

The University is the owner of the buildings and grounds, but we are independently managed as a cooperative with a 4.5 million dollar budget.

Cooperatives or Co-ops work for the sustainable development of their communities through policies approved by their members. All of these things are embodied in CSCC’s mission to provide cooperative style family housing for University of Minnesota students.
